    Communion and Young Children (3yrs and younger)

    Thanks :) it is a great feeling to have your children receive with you! I love that my Athanasia goes to Church school now too, there's just a few children in her class but at least she is able to meet others in her age group in Church!

    Matt. 15:5-6  "...But you say, "Whoever says to his father or mother, Whatever profit you might have received from me is a gift to God-- then he need not honor his father or mother.
